The buzzword in colleges today is TVS Scooty Streak. Super styling is what I could say when I had that first glance of the newly launched TVS Scooty Streak. This unisex styled Scooty Streak is positioned to seize the 100cc plus scooters’ market share including the Suzuki Access, Honda Aviator and the Kinetic Flyte.
The looks of the scooter are more or less retained the same as basic TVS Scooty. It will have the same double body and that distinctive snout in front too. Still Scooty Streak has many features to woo the metrosex scooter riders. The mobile charger would be one with a glove box that’s big enough and lockable. Scooty Streak also comes with skid-resistant wide tyres, so driving on wet and slick roads too could be far from fear.
TVS tweaked the shock absorption and gave the Scooty Streak total aluminum absorbers to give that bump-free ride on crater-filled city roads. I liked the seat contour architecture and consider it as one WOW feature in the new Scooty Streak. Sit on it and let me know if you didn’t get a feel of sitting on a bike. Then the headlamp is tweaked to give it a sharp look and the blinkers are now triangle shaped and look as if they are for new age; pretty cool. The tail lamps are fitted with LEDs, so your battery is going to last for long for sure. Both the mirrors are fitted into body-colored frames so will have more appeal. The footboard is flat and comfortable. However, you need to get down if you have to pump in the fuel into your Scooty Streak as the fuel tank is put on rear side.
Then comes the engine part. TVS Scooty Streak sports a novel LiTech engine. If you wonder what it means, well it makes it zippy zappy as well as light in weight implying that Scooty Streak engine will give good economy of petrol; probably the best in class scooter with respect to fuel efficiency.
The new TVS Scooty Streak is priced around Rs. 36,000 ex-showroom and will surely make the rivals rethink of price as well as the features. I don’t think that Suzuki Access or even Honda Aviator can appeal the trendy college youth. They certainly look bulky and gaudy and indeed they are heavy to handle as well. TVS’ fan following includes mostly the teen youth and Scooty Streak will tread the same path and will celebrate fanfare in colleges in the days to come. The new TVS Scooty Streak is launched in 5 colors; black, red, blue, pink and mauve. All of these will impress college youth.
